She was released in September, while Rev. Jackson was released two weeks ago after being in a rehabilitation facility, where he underwent therapy to treat his Parkinson’s disease.'
TSR cites Chicagosuntimes, and notes that 'Rev. Jackson had a gathering to celebrate his 80th birthday. He opened up about his career and health, surrounded by pastors and leaders from around Chicago. At the celebration, Rev. Jackson, who was vaccinated, said the vaccine saved his life.'
'I could not walk nor talk for three weeks,' he said. 'I went to rehab so I could learn how to walk or talk again. You need to know that, God, the shots matter.'
It's also important to note the fact that he encouraged others in the Black community to get the vaccine.
